Cost-Savings Breakdown

The Mr. Manhole system has been proven to be the finest, fastest, most affordable system for manhole repair.

Let’s Break Down The Actual Cost

The old method versus the Mr. Manhole method:

The majority of the savings comes down to the time involved in the process. By cutting the time needed to repair the manhole frame, you can save a lot of money in man-hours. Material costs are also reduced, thanks to the round cut.

The old methods are outdated. They’re dangerous, time-consuming, and inefficient even when completed right. Because of this, it can be hard to turn a profit.

Traditionally, a square was cut around the round manhole structure. This created many inefficiencies and took a lot of time to cut, remove, and repair.

Instead of using square cuts, the Mr. Manhole method uses round cuts, which generates 20 percent less debris while using 20 percent less replacement material. Plus, it can remove manhole frames, lids, and water valve boxes from the roadway quicker than anything else in the industry.

By comparison, the Mr. Manhole system was designed to allow a quick, high-quality, and accurate replacement of the frame and lid using a round cut. The entire process can be completed in an hour or less.

We purchased the Mr. Manhole Platinum Six-shooter a few weeks ago. Since that time we have cut 16+ box outs through concrete with no issues. Over the past few years our city, Cedar Falls, IA, has implemented a road sharing program for bicycles. For this to be achieved the street has been adjusted making some of our manholes in the wheel path of vehicles. The Mr. Manhole Markrite tool allows the riser tube to perfectly match the road height providing a near-seamless transition while driving over manholes. The Mr. Mister water spray system is also a must-have in my opinion. It greatly reduces the concrete silica in the air protecting the ground crew without the use of protective masks. I would recommend this product to any municipality or contractor that is looking to take the next step in manhole repairs.

Plus, where crews were getting one to two repairs completed in a day, the same crew can now complete 10 or more repairs daily. More time for repairs means you can bid and complete more jobs.

What this graphic doesn’t cover is the costs saved by improved worker safety. Since the heavy labor is done by the tool, your crews avoid injuries. Because the repair is done in about an hour, risks from disrupted traffic are also reduced.
